Just a little 4th Grade Virginia History:  Virginia is divided into 5 regions, The Coastal Plain near Hampton Roads, etc, the Piedmont, which we live in, the Appalachian Plateau, which we visited, the BlueRidge and the Valley and Ridge.

You guys are so cute with your matching poses! lol And MOM I love your dresses! Where did you get them?!?! I MUST know!

The one I wore Sunday in the mountains was bought at Ross for $12.99 last Thursday, and the the one I am wearing to the DC Temple is not a dress at all, but is a skirt with a white t-shirt and cami. I got the skirt 2 years ago from TJ Max at Potomac Yards. I think it was reasonably priced too! Love, Mother

I knew the second one was a skirt... but DANG out of luck... any thing bought at Ross or two years ago is long gone!

This was a great road trip. We basically drove one day out and one day back. We stopped everywhere we wanted and spent a few bucks on stuff like cherry cider. Mom got me a unique handmade belt buckle. The best part of the trip was that we did not have to be anywhere or travel on a schedule. Skyline Drive is the perfect place for a "Sunday drive."

Gorgeous scenes. I will have to go there someday! and yum cherry cider. where did you find that?

Melody said...

We found the "cherry cider" at a stand similar to the trading posts in New Mexico or Arizona. The "problem" with the cherry cider was that after we bought it, we read the ingredients---100% apple juice with cherry flavoring! But, I should've known better, in studying Virginia history with the 4th graders, Apples are one of Virginia's main products! Love, Mother
